And a huge thanks to all for putting up with my reminders!
I'm glad I found another picture for the top of the post: what in the world was I thinking when I put up that ugly hydrating mask monstrosity yesterday??? It will haunt me forever now!
Last night my daughter came by to tell me all about the first day back to school with the kids and I can't tell you how much we all laughed. Trust me when I say that I've never laughed so much in my life and we are a laughing family so that's saying an awful lot! There were parts of my body moving around that I had no idea existed. We watched things on YouTube that had us clinching our stomachs and then got rather naughty and had fast food - I think I was celebrating the hypothyroidism in some sort of strange way. Again: fibro-logic. We debated how we would pull the names out of the hat.
In the end, I think subtext was all: it was all about just being in a fantastic moment for all of us and we were happy to use any excuse to celebrate life and not worry about anything for a little while as we later tried to watch TV, and kept rewinding because no one could go for more than 30 seconds without coming up with something that would start the laughter again. I think it'll be one of those moments that you remember forever: it was just that good.
And those are the sort of things one lives for, no matter what your health, no matter what your problems.
Now I'm crawling back into bed - it was a bad night, after all the merriment and junk food, hence the delay. But all so worth it!
Happy Weekend everyone. I hope everyone's feeling their best, only better. Ciao and paka!
